Carolyn + John : Christ the Reedemer Wedding {Cypress Wedding Photographer}

Carolyn and John were biting their fingers last month. It was Thursday, the sky was dark and everything was looking wet. Friday’s rehearsal dinner was soaked, and the out of town guests got their taste of wacky Texas weather. But by Saturday afternoon – the dark skies broke up and the sun began to shine just in time for their wedding.

I started off the day by swinging by the Cypress Chateau as they finished getting things set up. C + J, used the traditional architecture at the chateau and kept everything simple, clean and elegant. I love how the mirror and crystal twinkled off all the natural light in the room.

I then headed to the church to wait for the bridal party to arrive. Carolyn looked gorgeous and her bridesmaid wore the cutest dresses. After the ceremony at Christ the Reedemer Catholic Church – the sun had set and we took advantage of the tall stained glass that glowed behind Carolyn and John.

Sometimes when I shoot a wedding by myself, I take along Emmanuel (my boyfriend) – for lighting assistance and to help me with all my equipment. He likes photography, he even took a course not to long ago in film. But he’s a little intimidated by it all. You kinda have to get ‘up in there’ and get the shot – you can’t be shy. When I’m off doing my work he’ll take out one of the spares in our bag and starts looking for special moments. I loved these last two he shot. While I was getting the money shots with the cake cutting – he stood back and captured this moment. I didn’t see it until I was editing and love it. I love him too. Great capture honey.

A big Thank You to the Sommar’s for having me document their special day. Lots of love, health and happiness to you and two your little girls!

Jen + Billy : A Woodlands Wedding Part I {Woodlands Wedding Photography}

I’m about to make Jen and her mom very happy ladies. This will be a Part I of a series of blog posts since there are so many wonderful moments captured for this love story. Jen and Billy were married in a beautiful ceremony at the Chapel in the Woods at the Fellowship of the Woodlands campus a few weeks ago. I’m not sure how, but Jamie -  Jen’s mom planned this wonderful event in three weeks! I’m sure she’d been planning a wedding for her daughters in her mind for years though. I can immediately tell how close she is to both of them. This April afternoon, it was Jennifer’s time.

The rain held off and in turn gave us nice even light for the pre ceremony images. The chapel is gorgeous, and even moreso in person. The flowers were spectacular and by C&M Floral Design. I loved how expressive Jen became as the dress came on too. She visited the ladies at Brickhouse Bridal for her dress and it fit her like a dream.

We set up a First Look with Jen’s dad. When the bride and groom opt to not see each other beforehand I usually suggest a first look with dad, because let’s face it – he’s a pretty special guy too. He was pretty anxious to see his first daughter getting married. I am thrilled that I was able to capture that moment for them. And lastly is a great family formal portrait. You don’t see too many of those posted on blogs – but I think they are so important. They may not be as creative but they are necessary and I always make it a point to save time in the day for them. It’s a day where everyone is looking their best and becomes an instant heirloom. Enjoy!

In a few days we’ll have more of Billy getting ready and ceremony + reception! Stay tuned!

Mom - Oh Michaelle, BEAUTIFUL!
The picture of me showing her the hem of her dress made me cry all over again! I had sewed in a piece of her ‘sweetie’ (blanket she adored as a child) and when I showed her we both started bawling.

Marie + Rod: A Classic Love Story {College Station Engagement Session}

A little secret of mine is that I have nicknames for my couples. Marie and Rodney are my Classics because their love story is the classic American tale. I’m so cheesy! lol.

The love of learning, public policy and their faith brought them together as they both pursued graduate degrees at the George H.W. Bush School at Texas A&M University. While they were in different programs, Rod was studying public service and administration and Marie was studying international affairs – they took courses in the same buildings. So it was only fitting that we return to where it all started. Rod of course proposed to Marie under the famed Century Tree.

Bush school is one of the newer buildings and is located on the west side of campus where the Presidential Library is as well. Being that the case, we shot a different aide of A&M not regularly seen.

Rod joked that he gave her winks in the halls to get her attention – there was some banter about Rod actually slapping Marie’s booty to get her attention – but frankly, Rod’s too much of a gentleman for that. I’m sure Marie just couldn’t resist falling for a Texan. She hails from Ohio. Go Cavs! (That’s for you Marie!)

They’re just perfect are they not? We’ll see them again this October, as they celebrate their union at St. John Vianney and gather for a beautiful reception for their nearest family and dearest friends at the Woodlands Resort and Conference Center.

Marie - Michaelle, I just love how these photos turned out! I hope you enjoyed being on campus and taking the photos as much as we loved posing for them :)

Thanks, again, and I can’t wait until October!
